Her Majesty's Government when the initial findings into the causes of the Grenfell Tower fire will be released.
Answered on: 10 July 2017

The Prime Minister has announced that a full independent public inquiry will consider the causes of the Grenfell Tower fire. The inquiry will be chaired by Sir Martin Moore-Bick and conducted under the Inquiries Act 2005 including the power to compel the production of documents, and to summon witnesses to give evidence on oath. We expect the inquiry to produce an interim report as early as possible. The Metropolitan Police launched a criminal investigation into the fire on 15 June, which is ongoing.
